Description

Join us for an in-depth, guided tour of two exhibitions! Explore Joan Irish: Landscapes Near and Far alongside some select New Works from our Permanent Collection. Learn about the artist's influences as a trained gallery educator leads you through the exhibition.

Joan Irish, who resides in rural Southwest Arkansas, is an en plein air artist, meaning that she paints on-site, capturing nature while experiencing a place, not just observing it. The exhibition will include pastel paintings from the Ouachita National Forest, the Gulf Coast, the coasts of Maine, and northern Spain.

Through acquisitions and donations over 75 years, the Fort Smith Regional Art Museum is sharing its art collection with the public in the Sandi and Sandy Sanders Gallery for the Permanent Collection in a series of rotating exhibitions.

The New Works exhibition features art with a diverse array of subject matter and media, showcasing choice pieces from the collection while also highlighting some of the museum’s new acquisitions and donated works.
